Students at Capital City Academy shot to the top of the class today with outstanding A-level grades.
Alex Thomas, principal of the school in Doyle Gardens, Willesden, said: “We are very excited to have received such a fantastic set of A-level results.
“The big improvement, with over half the grades A*-B, was especially pleasing.
“Well done to all the students and staff who have worked so hard to achieve this.
“Particular praise goes to Liviu Guiran and Diamond Abdulrahim who are going to Cambridge University and Hebaq Hassan who is going to read chemistry at Oxford University.”
Capital City Academy’s head boy, Liviu Giuran, 18, from Harlesden, will be heading to Cambridge after achieving three A grades in philosophy and ethics, psychology and history.

Liviu said he is looking forward to going away to university and being independent.
On his future career, Liviu said he may go into in diplomacy or investment banking
